rockwell_thanksgivingIt is a tradition with our family that at Thanksgiving Dinner, we go around the table and each of us says what we’re thankful for. It occurred to me that many other people may do the same, especially those who should get stuffed along with their turkeys.

So, The Planet’s crack surveillance team…after being yelled at by me for only surveilling cracks, have used our high tech equipment to eavesdrop on a number of notable people at their Thanksgiving Dinner. And if they complain about invasion of privacy, we will deny it happened, because, as we all know, “A wiretap requires a court order”.


SARAH PALIN: I’m thankful for trailer parks, the Civil War, America’s failing educational system, winks, sexually repressed Republicans, tea bags and people reading books to me.

JOE LIEBERMAN: I’m thankful for Benedict Arnold, Droopy the Dog, how easily knives go into backs, warm squishy mud between my toes and my ears, war, war, war, war and George Bush’s kissable cheeks.

arianna huffington 560ARIANNA HUFFINGTON: I’m thankful for trolls, backflips, hedge funds, California’s community property laws, masquerades, Joseph Goebbels’ Home Propaganda Kit, 50 point font and Freedom of Repression.

MICHELLE BACHMAN: I’m thankful for the Prozac shortage, bats and belfries, loose screws, Bizarro Superman, the Earth being flat and the Fiction section in The House of Representatives.

GLENN BECK: I’m thankful for Kleenexes, that hair is combustible, Joseph McCarthy, panic buttons, mindless hysterical fear of black people, Vicks VapoRub eye shadow and the limited range of broadcast mikes along with the new whisper-quiet technology of vibrators.

A happy Thanksgiving to all of our amazing members and readers, we’re so thankful to have all of you here and the wealth of your knowledge, intelligence, concern and wit that you so generously share here on The Planet.

    I’m thankful for friends, family, health, food and a roof over my head -- and yeah, this place which is like an oasis, a place of respite after a days toll of slaying those trolls!

    Happy Thanksgiving.

    Really, people? I was REALLY the first one to rate this article a 10 out of 10?

    Ad Lib, you’ve done it again.

    Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

    Now, back to my position in the hot kitchen…

    I am thankful to wake up every morning, that my hubby is healthy and loves his work. Thankful that my many furry ones love me as much as I love them.

    Thankful that many of my sick American friends might sooner than later have a chance for adequate healthcare which has always been their right.

    Thankful for my friends, old and new, for letting me vent, for the shoulders to cry on when in need, for your encouragement and understanding, I love you all.

    Thankful that Obama is your President and not the doddery McGrumps with Ms.Wasilla as his (very poor excuse) VPe.

    Last but not least, thankful that PlaneyPOV has brought together such a wonderful group of thinking, compassionate, funny, passionate and very caring people.

    Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!

    AdLib, hilarious.

    Happy Holiday Season to my PPOV family! I am very grateful for this vibrant corner of the internet. Today I am particularly grateful to be alive in this beautiful city where the sky is the color of a blue balloon.

    Hope everyone is having a great day with family and friends.

    I’m thankful for PlanetPOV.com and all of the excellent work that you all do here!

    Your site and our site (WEESeeYou.com) are most definitely kindred spirits.

    Just speaking for myself, I’m sick of the fauxgressive lies.

    It appears that Arianna feels “snubbed” because she wasn’t invited to the State Dinner on Tuesday.

    I invite you to come check out my most recent post, “The Wrath of Arianna and the Fauxgressives.” Here’s the link http://bit.ly/4Gv4Ni
    …or feel free to check us at WEESeeYou.com

      Hello Webb from Weesee….
      I think you are right about the snub! Someone suggested that yesterday on the latest “Obama’s Nefarious Visitors Log” thread on HP. The anti-Obama stuff has been stepped up considerably in the past few days since the dinner. It all makes sense now! Checking out your site!

    • nellie says:

      Wow — I am thankful for this link to your site. I’m going to pass it on. I think you may have something with your resentment theory. Maybe that explains a lot. Maybe there’s a lot of unrequited longing going on from the AH camp!

      I’m w you on the T-Day parades, too.

      • WebbfromWEESeeYou says:

        Your Welcome Nelly! There is plenty of unrequited longing…as a matter of fact, one of our bloggers wrote a post to inform Arianna that “The President is NOT [her] Boyfriend.”

        You might enjoy it too, here’s the link:

        You’re always welcome at WEESeeYou.com! Thanks for passing it on! WEELoveSomePlanetPOV too!

        • nellie says:

          Okay, that is brilliant. AND hilarious! Thanks for the uplift! Will DEFINITELY pass that one along!

          P.S. Katt is so wrong and so funny (as usual)

  8. PatsyT says:

    I am Thankful for the Obama’s in the White House.
    Very Thankful for Music, Dog shows on Animal Planet and soft klenex.
    I am Thankful for Kids that can take over the meal prep
    when the cold/cough has taken over me.
    They are doing a great job!

  9. Grabamop/Obama20082012 says:

    I’m thankful that my husband and I are hanging in with our jobs, we have a nice small house. Lots of cat’s, many friends, my mom, Democrats and Obama. I am glad to be a part of this site, and even though HP is going down the tubes, I like many of the people I have ‘met’ there. Happy day everyone!

  10. escribacat says:

    LOL. Love it! I’m thankful for greyhounds — esp Tinker and Chica, the Rocky Mountains, my good hiking shoes, all my favorite writers esp. Ray Carver, the internet, my cozy house and my Forester. Thankful my back is pretty stable right now, my boss’s business seems to be picking up. I am thankful for the turkey in the oven and the potatoes I still haven’t peeled! (better go do that now).

    I am not thankful for my varmint cat who threw up under my lovely table setting this morning.

    Happy thanksgiving to all.

    I’m thankful for friends and an adopted family complete with toddler who will liven my day. I’m thankful for being one of the blessed who has a job and therefore can put food in front of the aforementioned adopted family. I’m thankful for good friends, known and unknown, who have compassion for others and a sense of humor all at the same time. I’m thankful for no longer being dependent on Arianna’s screed, and I’m thankful for a president who honestly cares about his nation, not just the ‘have mores’. I’m thankful for turkey (and apologize to same for having turkey) and all the trimmings. I’m thankful for three more days off ’cause I’m exhausted trying to save the world. And I’m thankful again for all of you who also liven my day in ways different from the toddler. Or maybe the same. Whatever. Anyway -- thanks.

  12. KevenSeven says:

    I’m resentful that my hosts have already finished the mimosas, and I am still three hours from going over there.

    Eat sensibly and drive carefully!

    If I get too much booze into me, I’ll have the kid drive us home. She may be thirteen, but she is a smart cookie.

    ” width=”75″ height=”85″ alt=”dftt” />I’m thankful for Oxycontin, the fact that I don’t have to hold water for Bush anymore, Aryanna wanting Obama to fail too, racist and ignorant dittohead listeners, Cuban cigars, Sarah Palin’s breasts.

    Have a Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

    I’m going to eat until I explode and watch some football.
